THE WESTERN STAR, 21 June 1907
Obituary of JOHN M. CAMPBELL

J. M. Cambell died at 7:30 a.m. on Wednesday, June 19, 1907, at his home a few miles northwest of this city. He had been in failing health for some time. On last Saturday while driving to town he was seized with an
attack similiar to sunstroke. Late in the evening he was taken home in a weakened condition and he gradually became worse, losing consciousness about eight hours before his death. The remains were taken yesterday to
Wayne, Republican-co., Kans., where they will be laid to rest by the side of the mother and a sister.

John M. Campbell was a native of Missouri, but during his youthful days he moved to Pike-co., Ill., where, a little over 40 years ago, he was married to Sarah Glasgow, who, with two sons and three daughters,
survive him. Soon after the Civil war Mr. and Mrs. Campbell moved from Illinois to Republic-co., Kans., where they lived until the spring of 1900 when they moved to this county.

Deceased was one of Comanche-co.'s substantial citizens. He was a good neighbor and a law abiding and worthy citizen. During the Civil war he was a valiant Union soldier, serving in an Illinois regiment and
participating in some of the hottest campaigns.
